Abstract

ABSTRACT

There is a growing interest from newcomer countries to utilise nuclear energy for electricity generation. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has developed two methodologies, namely, the IAEA Milestone Approach and the International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) Methodology to help its Member States in assessing the viability of nuclear power programme (NPP) and nuclear energy system. This paper highlights important features of both methodologies in supporting deployment of nuclear power programme for a newcomer country. In summary, the IAEA Milestone Approach focuses for near term while the INPRO Methodology focuses for long term assessment to support the deployment of first NPP in newcomer countries. Depending on newcomer country’s priority and resources, both methodologies can be performed either separately or in-parallel.

 

ABSTRAK

Terdapat peningkatan minat dikalangan negara baru tenaga nuklear untuk membangunkan program kuasa nuklear bagi penjanaan elektrik. Agensi Tenaga Atom Antarabangsa (IAEA) telah membangunkan dua kaedah, iaitu pendekatan tanda aras IAEA dan Metodologi International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) untuk membantu negara-negara anggota melaksanakan penilaian terhadap kebolehlaksanaan program kuasa nuklear dan sistem tenaga nuklear. Kertas kerja ini menekankan ciri-ciri penting bagi kedua-dua kaedah ini dalam menyokong pembangunan program kuasa nuklear oleh sesebuah negara baru tenaga nuklear. Sebagai rumusan, pendekatan tanda aras IAEA memberi tumpuan kepada penilaian untuk tempoh masa terdekat manakala Metodologi INPRO memberi tumpuan kepada penilaian untuk tempoh masa yang lebih panjang dalam menyokong pelaksanaan program kuasa nuklear pertama sesebuah negara baru tenaga nuklear. Bergantung kepada keutamaan dan sumber dimiliki sesebuah negara baru tenaga nuklear, kedua-dua kaedah boleh digunapakai, sama ada secara berasingan atau bersama.
